Herzstein Hall featuring paper banner reading "Education without Trust" during the Masterson presidency controversy, Rice University
Herzstein Hall, with a banner reading “Education Without Trust” hung from the edge of the roof, during the controversy over Dr. William Masterson’s presidency of Rice University. There are two figures fixing the banner in place, one standing and bending over, while only the head of the second person is visible. The power plant tower is visible on the left side of the image. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
A five-day controversy rose on the campus of Rice University in February 1969 following the appointment of Dr. William H. Masterson by the Board of Trustees as the university's new President to succeed Kenneth Pitzer, who had resigned in August 1968.
